Two people with Covid-19 symptoms have died at Sher-e-Bangla Medical College (SBMC) in Barisal. 

Both of them passed away on Sunday, reports UNB. 

The deceased were identified as Niru Begum, 45, resident of Puranpara area in the city and Jakir Hossain, a Patuakhali resident.  

It has not been confirmed whether their samples have been collected for Covid-19 tests or not.

Of them, Niru was the first one to die at the Corona Unit of SBMC in the early hours of Sunday. Jakir reportedly died about eight hours after that. 

SBMC Director Dr Md Bakir Hossain said Niru's relatives rushed her to the emergency unit around 11:45pm.

After examining her symptoms, Dr Hossain advised them to move the patient to the Corona Unit of the hospital, where she died around 12.05am. 

She had been suffering from diarrhea and underwent treatment at Barisal General Hospital around three days ago.

She returned home after recovering but fell sick again with fever, throat pain, and asthma. She also had diabetes and high blood pressure, the doctor said, quoting relatives. 

Niru’s relatives took her body home soon after her death.  

Six patients showing Covid-19 symptoms were admitted to SBMC since Saturday night. Doctors said the hospital lacks any equipment to test for coronavirus.
